Well, not exactly walking.. More like a Flyabout? So, I already told you I transferred my lock over to the Horde side and got inspired to level her again. I’ve now gotten her to level 75 and even completed the Wrathgate set of quests! It’s a lot of fun seeing the other side of things in a bunch of areas. The only problem I feel is coming is that the quest lines that were split are coming back together. It seems that a lot of the quests are now just “reskinned” versions of the Alliance ones (or vice-versa). I hear Ice Crown gets back to more of the split again, but it might be a while before I get there!
Not only did I catch the questing/leveling bug on my ‘lock but I also seem to have picked it up on my Rogue! I spent a large amount of time yesterday questing on him. Enough, in fact, that he is now level 76! I also got MOST of the Wrathgate stuff done. They only thing left is the assault on Undercity. I also want to do the pre-cataclysm events. They are good xp for not much work. I’ve even managed to find and close 3 (or more, can’t remember) portals on my warlock!
That’s about it that is going on. We recorded a fun TNB with StealthySlyth from Gaming Angels on Saturday night and tonight is Polygamerous, of course. Tomorrow we do ICC25. Our raid leader only need 8 more shards for the Legendary and, even though he is the one that gets it, we’re all excited! Time to get going. I’ll try to keep you updated with what is going on. Less than one month until Cataclysm is starting to motivate me I guess.
Wow.. I’m really liking the look of the new WoW Portal/Blog/Forums so far. Just figured I would give everyone a heads up and a little “shot” of the new Site: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/ … I have to say it’s very.. Bloggish, you think? So, now where is the Blogging community section?!?!? .. Uh oh .. And now you know my real name .. Wait.. You probably already did. Ha..
So yeah, I don’t know if I told you already, but I transferred my little Gnome Warlock to the dark side! “Wait.. She was already a Warlock. How much darker can she get?”, I hear you saying (go ahead and say it.. I’ll wait right here).. Yeah.. I’m talking about the Horde! When picking which race to make her upon transfer, there really was no choice at all. Undead, of course! So, now I have an Undead Warlock (still named Fellmara). What next? Move her to Cenarion Circle and join us with Stop and cohorts over in <Builders League United> (BLU).
She was level 72 when I transferred her. She is currently level 74. Why? Is it easier to level horde than alliance? No.. Do I get a buff for being in Stop’s awesome guild? No.. (not yet). It’s because I am only doing the quests that are Horde specific! I leveled up really fast the first couple of times I leveled up as Alliance too.. But I’ve done that at least 5 times now ( and a few quests I’ve done 7 times!) and I’m getting a little bored of it. The quests I can find (I’m in Dragonblight now) that are different are actually more interesting but only because of that newness.
So, I did some of the quests in Borean Tundra first and then moved on to Dragonblight. During that time the phase 1 of the Cataclysm pre-quests came out and I went and did those which also netted me a good amount of XP very easily. So, basically that’s what’s been going on. I’ve still got a ton of rested XP on her and so I’ll keep playing her when I can to level her up.
On the raiding side of things, my Hunter picked up Deathbringer’s Will finally in our 25man ICC run. It’s so much fun getting transformed randomly into different humanoid forms. But anyway, We did pretty well and got all the way to Sindragosa (everything else clear) and wiped on her a couple of times before calling it a night.
That’s about it for me today. Only about 4 more weeks until Cataclysm! Are you excited? Did you say how you were getting your copy in the poll on the right (go to http://aatwow.fimlys.com if you are on an RSS reader)? What are you most looking forward to?
